its landscapes and terroir
In a range designated a Parc Naturel Régional since 1974, the team looking after the Pilat strive to conserve and enhance the natural, human and historic riches of this exceptional mountain massif.
The Pilat Regional Natural Park covers over 700km2 of mid-sized mountains. It spans two départements (French counties), the Loire and the Rhône. Its varied lands, going from vineyards beside the Rhône to high plateaux at an altitude of c.1,000m, offer many hiking and cycling possibilities, including mountain-bike trails. There are also traditional villages and historic sights to visit. A wide range of themed guided tours are organized in the park.
